From Murrieta to Washington DC

By invitation of US Department of Defense - Office of Commemorations:
The Murrieta Valley High School Band and Color Guard program has been invited to attend the National Festival of the States, representing the great State of California. The 2014 National Festival of the States is in observance and celebration of the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The invitation comes on behalf of the Armed Forces Center and the US Department of Defense, Office of Commemorations.

With a total tour cost of approximately $250,000, the Murrieta Vally Nighthawk Marching Band Boosters have raised close to $200,000 already!!! We are in the final stages of our fundraising efforts and need your help to "cross the finish line!"

Performances will include:
1. Standstill at the National World War II Memorial.
2. Formal concert at the Armed Forces Retirement Home
3. Participation in the National Memorial Day Parade.

The Murrieta Valley High School Instrumental Music Program provides an opportunity for students to develop an appreciation for music and encourage the skills and discipline necessary for achieving success throughout a lifetime of experiences. The music program forms a vital and important part of the school environment. The band and colorguard represent a large, successful, highly visible and highly disciplined segment of the school population.

Students will learn the importance of a cooperative team effort while working with fellow members to accomplish the shared goals of the program. Along with learning musical skills and life skills, students involved in the band program have a great time making new friends and traveling to new and exciting places to perform. In addition, the program challenges students in the areas of personal growth and musicianship.

In this and all we do, the MVHS Band and Color Guard works at "Setting the Standard of Excellence."
